July Update!

Hello everyone! It's July, I'm back, and I've got an update! Also, I am sick. Boo. Good news is that I've had two days off from my day job (plus one more tomorrow), so my throat feels much better, though a bit gravelly

First up, I HAVE A NEW WEBSITE! slugladystudio.com! Sadly, Artslug was already bought (by someone willing to sell it for several hundred dollars. Boo.) I've mostly been messing with the look and slowly moving everything from this website onto the new one, but it feels good to have a professional sounding website.

Also, Slug At Work has a new website too! slugatworkcomic.com It's also under construction, and I'll start posting chapter 1 onto the site after some much-needed polishing. Once everything is up on the new site, the Tumblr site will be closed. But don't worry, it's gonna be a bit before that.

As for Art Slug and Sluglady's sketch-log... I haven't really decided what to do with them. I won't close the site but I might just keep them as an archive.

So, what about new updates, huh?

Well, you might have noticed that I posted my first review in ages a week ago! And more updates are coming. I have one big illustrating job to do first! So, Slug at work is still on hiatus. But once that's done, Slug at work will be back, along lets plays, reviews, the whole shebang!

Also, I have been holding back on Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr regarding this last week of Steven Universe episodes. Starting Monday though? I'm going full-on spoilers including short videos up on Youtube

This is the Sluglady, Signing off!

My plans for July and THE EDMONTON PRIDE PARADE! YAY!

Hey all! First up, thank you to everyone that sent me support after that last post.

As for me, I`m kinda back. Slug At Work and all my other projects are still on hiatus (only on the internet, I`m still working on things IRL). But I`m breaking the "radio silence" I mentioned. Mainly because tomorrow is a very important day, and I'm one in a few voices that need to speak tomorrow. More on that at the end of the post.

I honestly don't want to talk about what happened and why I have chosen to go on hiatus for the next month. But I'll still be on twitter and facebook, where is the best place to go for any updates.

However, while I'm taking care of myself, I am still working on things. I will say that one thing I am upset about is that May... didn't really go as planned. I promised big things for may and didn't really have anything to show for it. So, I'm hoping July will be different. 

At the moment, I make no money off of my art, and if I want to put out things on a regular basis, I need to start. One reason for the hiatus is that I need money. And when I focus on my day job, my art suffers because of it.

My goal for July is to finally have a business up and running. That means a new, professional website for slug at work, a book cover I'm currently doing for a family member, a patreon, opening commisions and--- because I've been asked for it--- an actual STORE where you can buy prints of my work. And, with any luck, Slug At Work Chapter 1. 

These are my goals. Cross your fingers, cause I'm gonna need it.

Now, about WHY I'm going to be very vocal on social media tomorrow.

IT'S THE PRIDE PARADE IN EDMONTON!

And, I'm not sure I've mentioned this, but I am Asexual. Or rather, Grey Ace, is the proper term for me. It means that I do not have the sexual drive or even the same amount of interest in sex as other people. Like, at all. People that are purely asexual don't want anything to do with sex. And we aren't really known that well in the LGBTQ+ community. In fact, some people in the LGBTQ+ community don't even think we're real (ironic, huh?).

And as far as I can tell, there is one (maybe) official Asexual facebook group for Edmonton, but it's not very active, and there is definitely not a float in the parade. Oh, we are out there, THAT I know for sure. Because SOMEONE has been buying up all the asexual flags around town and it's not me.  (That said, I'm probably just really bad at looking. Socially awkward, remember)

So tomorrow, I'm going to do the scariest thing I have ever done. I'm going to turn myself into a giant asexual signal flare. That's right. ME. The socially awkward, socially inept basement artist, is going to try to attract other asexuals out of the crowds of people at the pride tomorrow.

How I am I going to do this? Well, along with wearing the colors of the asexual flag (black, grey, white, and purple), I'm also going to be carrying a BOUQUET OF ACE OF SPADE BALLOONS, during the parade. I'm not gonna be walking in the parade, but I can at least do this much.

I'll also be posting Asexual related videos on my twitter tomorrow (sorry facebook).

So, yeah, if you're at the Edmonton pride parade tomorrow, and you see me come to say hi! Especially if you're Asexual! Let's see how many of us can find each other tomorrow!


Oh lord, I can't believe I'm doing this. My therapist is gonna do cartwheels when she finds out.

Emergency Hiatus Until July- more info below

Hey guys. Sorry to do this, but something personal has come up and I`m basically going to be away for the rest of June. No art, no lets plays, no reviews. You'll see me favorite or retweet some stuff like i always do, but other than that, I`m basically going radio silent right now. I won`t get into what`s going on. Just know that I am okay, but I need the next couple of weeks. Pride is this weekend so maybe you might see some photos from that.

Till then,
 This is the Sluglady, signing off.

Slug At Work Chapter 2 page 1 is out!



I will admit, this page was a lesson in... experimenting. As I said before, It's been a while since I've painted like this. Heck, the last time I painted a page was back in November 2016! But when I looked at my digital and traditional paintings of betta fish and water, traditional just had a much better feel to me. And I'm taking a page out of Namesakes book and using color on important images. Mainly each fish. Luckily for me, the majority of pages feature one particular fish. So I need to go stock up on some blue inks ;)

Now on the technical side of experimenting... whoo-boy

I worked very hard to create a 3 point perspective grid by hand... and I'm pretty sure the perspective is still off. Only at the end did I realize that I could have just used a premade grid or a digital grid that would take minutes to make. Not to mention, several times while working on the page, I kept realizing that "Hey, don't I have (enter resource here)? That would have made this gone 10 times faster"

Ah well. Lessons learned for page 2.
